Automatic Debugging of Software: A Lost Cause or a Goal Worth Pursuing?
Fixing a software bug is not as nearly as hard as finding the cause (or the location) of the bug. Therefore, researchers have invested a considerable effort to automate the process of debugging a software, i.e., to automatically find the cause of the bug. Automatically finding the cause of a bug is a very appealing goal as developing software would become a much easier task than it is nowadays (not to mention the cost benefits). However, in order to automatically debug software systems we need to overcome (impossible?) challenges. In this talk, I will provide an overview of the recent advancements (while presenting my own research, of course) in the area of automatic debugging of software systems.
